The National Backpain Association – Backcare

backPainshow-imgThe National Backpain Association – Backcare – has announced a number of new speakers for their Back Pain Show on 19 & 20 May at St Andrews Stadium, Birmingham.

Gavin Bradley is founder and managing director of Active Working®, which operates “Get Standing®” campaigns in Great Britain, Australia, USA and Canada to drive awareness and interest in the health risks connected with sedentary working of office workers.

As the major international thought leader and pioneer, Gavin commissioned the first global expert recommendations on standing / light activity time for office workers (with support from Public Health England) published by the British Journal for Sports Medicine in June 2015.  These guidelines serve as a benchmark and continue to receive mass media interest globally.

He will be addressing the show’s audience at presentations on both days as will Daniel Lawrence –  a Chartered Physiotherapist with over 10 years’ experience treating back pain in private practice. Daniel has authored articles and lectured internationally on physio related topics. He currently leads the education team for RockTape in the UK and has been invited to many professional and public conferences.

Daniel will demonstrate how to apply tape for common back pain in a simple and easy to follow way enabling his audience to try the technique for themselves and have an understanding of when to use it and how it can help.

Gavin and Daniel join chartered physiotherapist David Rogers whose presentation at the show was announced last month. David will be holding a number of surgeries at the show as well as making two presentations.

On the second day of the show Professor Jeremy Fairbank, consultant orthopaedic surgeon at the Oxford University Hospital, who has a special interest in spinal disorders, poses the question: To scan or not to scan? He says the problem with MRI scans is that it is possible to find something wrong with everyone.

Organised on behalf of Backcare – the National Back Pain Association – the two-day show features some 40 exhibitors featuring therapies, products and services associated with the treatment of back pain as well as a range of conferences, presentations and seminars.

Admission to the show is free by registering at where further information on the two-day event can also be found.
